I haven't tried all of these downloads, and can't vouch for their quality, but I do know the elf bowling games are hilarious and Irfanview is my default viewer. Please scan these downloads for viruses. They don't come from me and I have no control over them. Please email me if these links have gone dead. Thanks.

NOTE from Lesley: I've been using this program since around 1998 and I get every update. It's a wonderful little program that can become your default viewer for pictures and sounds. It loads so much faster than anything else out there. I am currently running Win XP and have installed Irfanview to become the default viewer instead on the XP viewer. Highly recommended.

Elf Bowling 2
Hold on to your stockings - those bawdy, naughty elves are back in town! "EB2: Elves in Paradise" hit cyberspace, November 15, 2000. This year the snickering elves are back with Santa, but there is a new twist as Santa's ne'er-do-well brother, Dingle Kringle joins Santa and the Elves on a cruise ship headed for an island adventure. Players compete in a crazy shuffleboard tournament, with the Elves - oh that naughty Santa - serving as "pucks" and providing their own special, colorful commentary. There are plenty of hilarious surprises to continue the irreverent escapades of the Elves, and players register their scores to compete with other participants from around the world.

Elf Bowling 3
Having returned to the North Pole Santa finds Rudolph and all the reindeer unable to fly the sleigh (or count backwards…or walk in a straight line… or touch their hoof to their nose…). Seems they have become good friends with Santa's older brother Dingle Kringle who has fallen off the wagon…again.
